Lowest Energy Structures and Electronic Properties of Small Molybdenum Clusters
The structural and geometric properties of small Mo clusters are studied by means of first principles density functional theory (DFT) calculations with planewaves and pseudopotentials. The lowest energy structures of Mon (n=2-6) clusters are determined. The evolution of electronic properties with increasing cluster size is discussed. The geometric structure, average bond lengths, and binding energies of the lowest energy isomers are reported and the results are compared with the available experimental and theoretical data.
